The first Italian rendez-vous for the Panerai Classic Challenge

The history of the Argentario Sailing Week goes back to 1992 when a group of YCSS members organized a classic yachts regatta called Silver Sails. As the years passed the number of classic yachts increased and in 1999 the Argentario Sailing Week was finally born.

In the second half of June, when winds blow more strongly, ideal conditions are created for racing around the ancient port of Santo Stefano, on the western side of Mount Argentario. That is precisely when the Argentario Sailing Week is held, the regatta reserved to classic yachts only.

The yachts are moored along the spectacular ancient harbour of Porto S. Stefano, called 'La Pilarella', where crews enjoy the historical appeal of the village and its restaurants, bars and boutiques right on the docks.

Three challenging days of racing in some of the best sailing conditions in the Mediterranean combined with the famous YCSS hospitality make the Argentario Sailing Week an event not to be missed. Yachts that have attended the Argentario Sailing Week last year included Moonbeam of Fife, Hallowe'en, Cambria and Savannah.
